Magna'Tron™ Neck Pickup - Universal Mount™

The Magna'Tron blends single-coil twang with unique Filter'Tron & DeArmond influence. Although it can sound just like a single-coil, it is built with two coils and qualifies as a humbucker. The dual-coils provide a hint of compression on the high-end and no 60-cycle hum. One part of the recipe that makes the Magna'Tron so special is it's staggered cylinder "Fender-style" magnets.

Tone/Characteristics

Bright and chirpy with quick attack and exceptional pop and clarity. The Magna'Tron delivers a unique mix of single-coil spank meets Filter'Tron style twang with no hum! Slightly brighter and tighter on the bass than the TV Classic.

 Output/Power

DC Resistance is not entirely an indicator of true pickup output, although it can be helpful.

Bridge: DCR - 8.0k / Inductance - 2.92H

Neck: DCR - 4.8k / Inductance - 1.24H

Installation

The Universal Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for standard sized Filter'Trons - with and without "ears" or "clips". This pickup comes with two pieces of compression rubber, 2 mounting (wood) screws, and the Universal Mount Clip Pack which includes everything you will need to mount the pickups to your ring or pickguard. 

Wiring Notes

This pickup is shipped with 4-conductor wire but is ready for standard 2-conductor connection. The extra red and green wires come soldered together and taped off - to split coils, send these to ground.

Splitting coils is generally not recommended with the Magna'Tron because of it's natural tight and bright sound however some may enjoy it. Additionally, the 4-Conductor wire is convenient for custom switching i.e. pickups combined in series or parallel.
